A Penny for Aisha Buhari’s Thoughts

Aisha Buhari,
Aisha Buhari

Wife of President Muhammadu Buhari, Aisha Buhari, for a noteworthy second time, threw shades at the leadership of the All Progressives Congress (APC) for the manner it conducted its primaries in many parts of the country, saying the APC leadership had deviated completely from the ideals of democracy it claims to project.

Aisha’s brother, Mahmud Halilu Ahmed, was one of those who failed to clinch the governorship ticket of the APC in Adamawa State after an initial report that he had defeated the incumbent governor, Mohammed Bindow. Believed to have spurred Aisha into spewing venom, this development provided grounds for her to unguardedly demystify her husband’s party.

Sometime back, Aisha had alleged a brazen hijack of the government by people she claimed could not even account for how the party won the election and warned that if the tide did not change, she might not waste her time campaigning for Buhari’s re-election. Truth is, whatever Aisha is saying is not different from what an average person can relate to in the country.

But coming from her, it not only carries weight, it tells of the truth of what is happening in Aso Rock. Aisha might just be the prophet God has sent to intimate the people with facts on the state of the nation. Pay attention, don’t vilify her.
